Mordue Doubles After Strange Call


On the {10-Diamonds}{8-Clubs}{3-Spades} flop, James Mordue was all in for a few thousand with his opponent in the tank. While his opponent was tanking, Mordue turned over one card and showed the {10-Clubs} for at least top pair. His opponent tanked for a bit longer, commenting about how he felt he was in really bad shape, but the odds were still pretty good to make the call.

Eventually, the player made the call and Mordue turned over his other card to reveal the {10-Clubs}{9-Diamonds}. "Ahhh, you got me in really bad shape," his opponent said before turning over the {9-Spades}{9-Hearts}.

The turn and river completed the board with the {Q-Clubs} and {7-Clubs} to allow Mordue to double up.
